Task # 7 -Technology Thoughts
I have been having fun with Learning 2.0. The thing is, it's easy for me. I work full time and find a few minutes here and there to go online and play. However, I am concerned about our part time staff. Many days they are not able to get to the workroom PC, where 7 people share one machine. If they are not able to do the 23 tasks, they will not have a chance for a free MP3 player. How will they feel at staff day when the players are being handed out? Will they be thinking that their managers didn't give them a fair chance to participate? I know that some staff are participating from home, but it is not fair to make someone doing something work-related from home on their own time. I think it would be fair to have a shortened version of the 23 tasks for part time staff. I do think having a blog is fun and very current, so maybe that could be their major task. Then have them do a few other things and call it good. That way, everyone can participate, even with limited time.
